What Are the Different Kinds of Air Pollutants? Camfil Canada Air Pollution Experts Explain Particulate Matter, VOCs, and More

In Canada, air pollution is linked to at least 15,000 premature deaths per year. Globally, an estimated 4.2 million people die prematurely due to exposure to harmful airborne pollutants.

Environment Canada designates six main air pollution challenges to be tackled through policy and research:

  • acidic deposition
  • climate change
  • stratospheric ozone depletion
  • hazardous air pollutant
  • surface oxidant episodes
  • suspended particulate matter

Though each of these categories is assessed by its own cluster of scientists, analysts, and pollution experts, each is interconnected. Removing hazardous air pollutants from the air, for example, will help reduce instances of surface oxidant episodes (corrosion). These categories focus mainly on the consequences caused by air pollution rather than the specific solutions to best address them.

In this article, air quality experts from Camfil Canada, a global leader in air filtration research and engineering, explain the two main classes of air pollutants and how to address each of them.
